Despite Google’s valiant attempt to make Android a safer playground for its users by introducing the anti-malware Bouncer service last February, which helps scan... apps on Google Play Store for malware and keep them out, experts are still finding security loopholes that can wreak havoc on your Android device.

The first threat we’re going to talk abou...

google-handwrite

Google Handwrite is one feature that Galaxy Note owners will be happy to get. The newly unveiled function will make the Note’s stylus even more useful – users can now search on... Google by handwriting the words. And, while this sounds like the perfect application for the stylus of the Galaxy Note, Handwrite seems to work just as well with fingers.

To use the new Handwr...

Google-Currents

Chrome won’t be the only app coming pre-installed with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, although Chrome is actually meant to replace the stock Android browser, while Google Currents will be added... to all the other Google apps, such as Gmail, Maps, Play Store, and so on.

Google Currents is kind of a hybrid between a RSS reader and a social reader, much like Flipboard, although Flipboard star...

Canadian carriers are not exactly known for their small prices. The prices of phones on contracts may look reasonable at first sight, but the contracts last for three years, and the carriers... make sure they make a lot more money on a phone than they are investing in subsidies. This is why it’s a little surprising to see Bell selling a decent Android 4.0 smartphone for only $200 unlo...

At Google I/O 2012, we’ve heard and seen so many amazing things that it’s a little hard to keep track of all of them, and most importantly, to put them into perspective.

One such... snippet of information that didn’t catch the spotlight is the number of people worldwide that use Google’s Chrome browser: 310 million. Moreover, Chrome has achieved something historical in May 2...

google-chrome-for-iphone-video

The stable version of Chrome has finally arrived on the Play Store a couple of days ago, but Google has also made Chrome available for the iOS platform the next day.

Within a day, Chrome... for iOS managed to become the most installed application in Apple’s store. This probably surprised some, but considering that Chrome is now the most popular browser in the world (not counting IE7...

chrome-experiments-mobile

Google has made the Chrome Experiments site to allow developers to showcase their HTML5 demos, where they’re made with Javascript, CSS or even WebGL. These demos are meant not only to... show what you can do with Chrome, which has very fast Javascript and WebGL performance, as well as very good HTML5 support, but also so developers can push the envelope with their creations, and push...

It seems this is the end of the road for Flash on mobile devices. Adobe tried their best to bring Flash to the mobile world, to both Android and iOS, but we all know what Steve Jobs thought... about Flash, so that was never going to become a reality. Flash, even today, has poor performance on mobile devices, unless you own at least a dual core smartphone. With the world moving on to h.264...

electronic arts strike force html5 game

Although EA pulled their games from the Google+ game store for lack of user interest (I don’t think Google+ users like playing Flash games that much, and they don’t like getting... spammed like in Facebook, either), it seems that the video games giant will still partner with Google to release a sophisticated 3D multiplayer game for Chrome and ICS devices, that surprisingly is n...
